REP. JOHN MICA JOINS WILLIAM SHATNER & CAPT. OBVIOUS

At the hearing regarding the recent lapses in security involving the Secret Service, Rep. John Mica (R-Fla), actually held up an ADT sign and asked the Director of the Secret Service " have you heard of these guys?" You simply must watch the video to appreciate the base, common, down to earth reasoning of our leaders ! I actually was watching C-Span at the time of this gem. Now I share it with you.

ANOTHER GEORGIA POL LOSES HIS WAY

Amanda Terkel at The Huffington Post writes this gem.

Sept. 30, 2014

WASHINGTON -- Georgia GOP Senate candidate David Perdue has touted his background as a businessman in his race against Democrat Michelle Nunn, arguing that his experience in the private sector makes him better qualified to take on America's economic problems.

During a Georgia Chamber of Commerce forum on Aug. 21, Perdue talked about the best way to spur economic growth. 

"We're losing our competitive edge because we're not paying attention to our infrastructure," he said. "It's one of the five basic precepts of economic development: regulatory control, educated workforce, water, cheap power and infrastructure. That’s how you grow an economy."END

MY TURN

I am astounded to read that a Georgia Republican includes " REGULATORY CONTROL " as one of the precepts of economic development. Those two words are never uttered by the conservative pols ! I did not make this up, read it for yourself at :

RIGHT WING PARANOIA PERSONIFIED

CONGRESSMAN PAUL BROUN JR. (R-GA)
Excerpted From Matthew Pulver of "Salon"
Sept. 30, 2014
Broun, a skilled purveyor of a Southern politics of persecution, was an early alarmist, predicting a violently oppressive, explicitly Hitlerian regime just days after President Obama’s election in 2008. Broun’s repeated evocation of Hitler and Stalin would later find its way into the crass iconography of Tea Party protests. The stakes have always been existential to Broun. In an almost mystical ritual, Broun, a born-again Christian, snuck onto the inaugural stage in 2009 to anoint the door through which Obama would pass with holy oil, entreating God to come to the aid of His besieged and cleanse the new president of his tyrannical evil. Broun’s persecution narrative, dismissed by many at the time as hayseed hyperbole, now forms the basis of conservative arguments on nearly every issue. 
END
MY TURN
I do not want to belabor this point, but the political right is indistinguishable these days from the religious extremists or the cultist religious extremists. You cannot separate or draw a line between any Republican and Religion. The concept of keeping Religion out of politics is completely destroyed.
The very idea of Rep. Broun anointing a door through which a newly elected President was to pass in order to " entreat God to come to the aid of His besieged and cleanse the new President of his tyrannical evil " just flat out boggles my little gray cells. Had Barack Obama ever done anything tyrannicaly evil or was the pot calling the kettle BLACK !

DEMOCRACY OR NO DEMOCRACY

SHORT WARS DO NOT EXIST WITHOUT INTELLECT

When in the course of human events, intelligent men come forth. 
Theodore Roosevelt once commanded his cowboys on a steer roundup, " Hasten Forward Quickly There." Then there was the George W. Bush group of cowboys.

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM TURNS GREEN WITH APOPLEXIA

According to video, Sen. Graham appeared on the FOX Sunday morning show and just got his knickers totally tied up in a knot. He was apoplectic, eyes bulging, hair standing on end, trying to reach through the camera to grab people by the neck, screaming that "we will all die" because President Obama is not taking ISIS/ISIL seriously enough according to the Graham doctrine of WAR ABOVE ALL ELSE !
Seriously, Sen. Graham seems to think that the ISIS/ISIL Army is going to load up, all 30,000 of them, onto the ISIS/ISIL Navy vessels or the ISIS/ISIL Air Force planes and said ARMADA will head out to America so that they can "KILL US ALL"
Oh yes, then there was one of his favorite phrases, "I WILL NOT ALLOW THIS PRESIDENT TO ----"
The only thing missing in this display is that his Left Hand Man, Sen. John McCain was somewhere else proclaiming that President Obama was personally responsible for the Middle East Wars of the last thousand years, all the while stating that there would be peace in the Middle East if only HE were President.
I did not and could not make this stuff up,
